FOLLOWERS of the Eddery family had a profitable day yesterday with Pat riding four winners at Brighton and younger brother Paul notching two at Nottingham.

Each of the champion jockey's four wins, on Bello Gallico, New Capricorn, Elementary and Hesell Street, were for different trainers. The latter got Luca Cumani off the mark for the season, while 11-year- old Elementary was recording a first Flat win on turf for his young trainer, Nick Walker.

'This will have done the old boy's confidence a bit of good,' Walker said, referring to the horse rather than the rider.

At Edinburgh, the jockeys John McLaughlin and Alan Daley received bans for transgressing the whip rules.

Moonlight Dance, a comfortable Longchamp winner for Andre Fabre and Daniel Wildenstein on Saturday, has been backed down to 25-1 from 33-1 for the Oaks.
